Background and structure

The exchange was converted to a limited company in 1996 with share capital issued in a ratio of 60-20-20 to members, issuers of shares, and issuers of bonds. In 1997 the FUTOP Clearing Center A/S, the Danish derivatives market, became a wholly owned subsidiary. FUTOP issues, clears, and guarantees futures and options on shares, indices, and interest rate products. FUTOP products can be traded electronically. In 1998, the CSE and the Stockholmsbörsen formed the NOREX Alliance, a step toward developing a Nordic securities market. Normal trading sessions are from 09:00am to 05:00pm on all days of the week except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by the exchange in advance.[1]

CSE indices

The KFX Index comprises growth companies in the medical, telecommunications, biotechnology, and information technology sectors on the exchanges KVX Growth Market. The KAX Index is the exchange's all-share index, introduced in 2001 to replace the previous all-share index. It conforms to the Global Industry Classification Standard developed by Morgan Stanley Dean Witter and Standard & Poor's.
